David West (thumb) is unlikely to return before the All-Star break.

The Warriors haven't missed him too much with Kevon Looney and James Michael McAdoo giving the Warriors decent minutes. West can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Feb 9 - 2:24 AM

David West (thumb) will not play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

West was able to practice on Monday, but he's still experiencing pain in his surgically repaired thumb, so the Dubs will continue to take a cautious approach here. After Wednesday, Golden State will have a back-to-back set Friday in Memphis and Saturday in OKC, and for now, we'll be considering West questionable for those games.
Feb 7 - 3:23 PM

David West (thumb) practiced on Monday, but he's doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

West is still experiencing pain in his thumb, and until he's completely pain-free, he won't be returning for any game-time action. West is only averaging 11.5 minutes per game this season, so his absence from the rotation doesn't have any major implications in fantasy hoops.
Feb 6 - 3:52 PM

David West (thumb) will not play against the Kings on Saturday.

He is still expected to ramp up next week, so this is expected. With West out, Kevon Looney and James Michael McAdoo could both be in the rotation, especially with Anderson Varejao being waived today.
Feb 3 - 7:38 PM

David West (thumb) remains out for Thursday against the Clippers.

He is going to ramp up soon, but he's still not available to play. With Draymond Green out, Kevon Looney is likely looking at his biggest opportunity in his NBA career and gets to go up against Blake Griffin. We'll see some James Michael McAdoo and obviously plenty of Kevin Durant at the four. Plus, this also helps JaVale McGee a little.
Feb 2 - 3:32 PM

David West (thumb) is ramping up his activity and will be reevaluated early next week.

He is still on track for his two-week timetable, which puts at a target date of about next weekend. Without West, it's been a series of matchup-based moves with some James Michael McAdoo and some small ball.
Jan 27 - 4:44 PM

David West has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his left thumb, and he will be reevaluated in two weeks.

The injury was initially called a bruise, but X-rays revealed a more serious issue. The Warriors' frontcourt gets even thinner without him, and they're likely to turn to Kevon Looney while emphasizing more small-ball lineups featuring Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Ian Clark. The Warriors may also rely more on their big men, and there's no clear-cut fantasy winner in this situation.

David West hit 4-of-5 shots for 10 points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 16 minutes on Thursday.

West is averaging 10.8 minutes per game for the season, but saw some extra run against the Nets as Draymond Green (personal) did not play. There is a chance that Green misses Friday's game against the Pistons, so West could see an increased role in that game as well. Even with the extra minutes, West is not a reliable fantasy option.

David West (hip) is probable to play against the Blazers on Saturday.

The Warriors could have him in their backup role. In other news, West is getting close to the status cycle. He was doubtful this morning, questionable this afternoon, and now he's probable. If he's a late scratch, he'll be the only player to hit for the status cycle this season.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 08:54:00 PM

David West (hip) has been upgraded to questionable to face the Blazers on Saturday.

His hip pointer doesn't sound like a concern and West could wind up being available for tonight. Even if West is a go, he won't be a reliable fantasy option.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 04:03:00 PM

David West (hip) went through some of shootaround on Saturday and is doubtful to play against the Blazers.

It's a positive sign for West and the team doesn't sound too concerned about his hip pointer. West is only getting around 11 minutes per game these days, so the Warriors won't miss him much. We may see some Kevon Looney.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 03:06:00 PM

David West (right hip) needs an MRI on his hip and is doubtful to play Saturday against Portland.

The Warriors are tentatively labeling the injury as a contusion. "He felt a little tug in there," coach Steve Kerr said. "We’ll see what comes of the MRI tomorrow. But it’s definitely something that concerns us." West is averaging fewer than 12 minutes per game, so the fantasy implications of his injury are minimal.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 11:36:00 AM

David West (right hip) has been diagnosed with a hip pointer and is doubtful to play on Saturday against the Blazers.

Hip pointers aren't usually bad injuries, but there have been cases it requires a long time off. Plus, it doesn't help that West is 36 years old. He's only playing 11 minutes per game as Draymond Green's backup, so those minutes would likely go to Kevon Looney.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 03:24:00 PM

David West (hip) will not return to Thursday night’s game against the Warriors after sustaining a hip contusion.

West is considered day-to-day and will undergo an MRI on Friday. His absence should not affect fantasy owners.
